Packed with a big sound and lots of attitude, Stephen Hurd passionately delivers 'A Call To Worship Live in DCl. From the First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Landover, Maryland, where Stephen is assistant minister of music, this recording captures Hurd's heart to offer his very all to the King of Kings. Matt Redman's "Undignified" has been given the gospel up-tempo treatment along with other favourites like "Cry Out O Zion" and "Stand" really speaks for itself. Some songs do go on a bit but that "goes with the turf" with live gospel recordings so you won't find too many interesting melodies, but plenty of action, a lot of heart and some fantastic choral harmonies. You'd easily assume he's been pumping out gospel albums for years and I'm sure this stunning debut will be the first of many!
